Raisels The Fruit Kids Will Love

I know how hard it is to get kids to eat fruit. My daughters both ate fruit as babies and well into toddlerhood. Then something happened. Fruit became the food to avoid no matter how tasty it looked, how juicy and sweet it is. Even naturally sweet raisins didn’t work any more.

Raisels have changed that. One taste of Sour Lemon Blast Raisels and it was as if I had given my daughter candy to eat. She puckered and she smiled and she wanted more. Who was I to say no, especially when I read about that Raisels are rich in antioxidants, fat free, cholesterol free, sodium free and contain 100% of the US RDA of Vitamin C. Best of all they’re real fruit!

Made with golden raisins,

We contract with the U.S. Deptartment of Agriculture to have a full-time quality inspector on site. And we use a proprietary 35-cycle cleaning process to make his job really hard!

sugar, natural flavors, citric acid, asorbic acid (Vitamin C) and Sulfur Dioxide, each 1.25 oz. box of Raisels contains 21 grams of sugar. Sounds like a lot, but 90% of the sugar is from the golden raisins on their own – naturally occurring. Compare that to a 3.25″ diameter apple which has 23 grams of sugar or a 6 oz. serving of Yoplait original strawberry yogurt, which has 26 grams of sugar. Lot of other food items, especially candies, have even more sugar.

Flavors of Raisels

Sour Peach Pucker, Sour Lemon Blast, Sour Apple TKO, Sour Orange Burst and coming soon Sour Watermelon Shock


You can find Raisels at Walgreens, Target (Market Pantry), Dollar General, etc. and on Amazon.com Follow Raisels on Twitter and fan their page on Facebook for updates, contests and fun.

Right now there are some blog giveaways for Raisels so check them out and let you kids get a taste of the fruit that they’ll love. There’s also a Twitter party scheduled for February 24th. Look out for the #Raisels hashtag for the time and more info.

I received Raisels for this review from Team Mom for this review. All opinions are my own.
